But what happens when she meets Lucifer who doesn’t believe in love?
Can she restore a heart to this heartless monster?
The wind blowing past my ears made me increased my pace, the dark clouds are moving very fast. I close my eyes slightly as the strong wind blew sand in my eyes.
*How come it suddenly wants to rain?* I grumbled within me.
People are running to either take shelter before it rains or get to their destination in time before it rains.
The boss station is still far from where I am now, if I decide to rush there, I bet I’ll be drenched in the rain.
Looking around, I saw a dark alley, I bite my lower lip as I meditate whether to take shelter there or not.
*Many bad things always happens in a dark alley* I thought.
Suddenly, a very strong wind blew past me and I shiver, I feel my hands shaking in cold.
*I don’t have a choice… Since it’s about to rain, I don’t think I’ll meet any evil in the alley* with that little courage, I dashed into the alley.
I loose my sweater from around my waist and wore it, I rub my hand together and smile in satisfaction.
*Much better!* I’m a little warmer now.
Soon, it’s raining heavily. I sighed softly and close my eyes to enjoy the sound of the rain hitting the roof.
You can say I love rainy days, because it’s the only day I can lazy about.
I flinch back in fright as I hear a loud thud, my eyes grew wide in fear.
*Please don’t tell me the bad guys are here!* I panicked.
Then I heard a groan, a weak groan as if someone is in pain. I quickly open my backpack and reach for my pepper spray and torch lighter.
It’s raining cats and dogs outside, I can get in the rain and get sick. And I can’t just wait quietly for my death, I should find out if I’m safe or not.
I take slow steps towards the direction I heard the groan, I turn on my torch. With each step I take, the groaning becomes louder.
My torch fell off my hand just as I released a frightened gasp, I quickly picked up my torch and point out my pepper spray as my weapon. I take slow steps forward and take a closer look…. There’s a man.
I crunched and look at him closely he’s covered in blood and breathing weakly.
*Oh my goodness! Heavens! What happened to this man?* I wonder.
I’m suddenly in a tight grip and my torch was snatched from me, I close my eyes as my torch was pointed back at my face.
“Who the f**k are you?!” A male voice growled in my ear.
I tried to free myself but he wouldn’t let go, his grip is too tight.
*I thought he’s injured? How come he’s still this strong?*
“Who the f**k are you?! Speak before I send you to your bloody maker!!” I feel something cold touch my head and I gulp.
It shouldn’t be what I’m thinking…. I shouldn’t have come here….. I should have entered the rain.
“I.. I.. I’m Catherine and I only came for shelter…. I promise I’ll leave after the rain…. A.. and I didn’t see anything… I didn’t see you… I didn’t see you are bleeding…. I didn’t see any bleeding man… I…. ”
I nod and shut my mouth instantly. He lets go of me and pushed me away, he begin to cough and spat out some blood.
He grunts as he crawl back and rest against the wall.
I cling on my bag tightly, I bite my tongue and hesitate. I want to help him but I don’t know if I should or shouldn’t.
“What are you still doing here?! Go somewhere else!!” He sneered.
“Erm…. ” I point at him. “You…. Injured… I… Tre… Treatment”
I can’t see his face but I can tell he’s staring or glaring at me in confusion since what I just said made no sense.
I cleared my throat, I’m just offering help, he can’t kill me for that, right?
“You are injured, let me treat you!”
“But you are bleeding so much, if I don’t clean your wounds now it’s gonna get infected later”
“Come on, I’m not gonna charge you. After all, I’m not a nurse or doctor, I only know the basics”
He didn’t say another but I heard him sigh. I took that as his approval and drop my bag, picked up my torch and search my bag. I took out the equipment I’d use, I always carry them along because I’m clumsy… I use them everytime I’m hurt.
I unbutton his shirt and saw a hole on his chest, blood gushing out.
“Baby Jesus! How did you get hurt like this?”
I sigh and look at the hole, the blood is pouring non-stop.
“Don’t just stare at it!!”
“There’s a bullet, pull it out slowly!!”
I freezed. Did I hear him wrong?
“Bu… Bu… Bu…”
“F**king pull it out!!”
I nod quickly and reach for a scissors in my bag, my hands are shaking. Like seriously, I’m hardly holding the scissors, how can I pull the bullet out?
“What are you still waiting for!!”
In fright I stab the scissors in his chest and he hissed loudly.
“I’m sorry… I’m so sorry… Oh my God… I…”
“Bloody pull it out!!” He growled out.
I nod frantically and pulled the scissors out, I don’t know what happened. The bullet was supposed to go in more, but it surprisingly fell out.
“I’m sorry… Please forgive me….”
“Clean it up and wrap my wound!!”
“Yes, yes, yes”
I quickly clean up the wound and manage to stop the bleeding anyhow, I wrap him up and quickly packed up my stuff.
He grab my hand before I could run off.
“If anyone knows about this…. I’ll hunt you down and kill you!!!”
I raised my fingers up with my thumb crossed.
“I swear, nobody will ever know… I didn’t see you… I didn’t treat any injured man”
Well, you don’t need to tell me twice. I ran off immediately, thankfully it has stopped raining.
I ran and ran until I got to the bus station. I stopped and try to catch my breath…. that was scary.
*Cat! Cat! When will you stop helping strangers?*
I could have died today if not for my good fortune.
Hopefully, I will never see him again.
